Morning after Pill

Emergency hormonal contraception, also called “the morning after pill”, is available from our pharmacy with or without a doctor’s prescription.

What is it?

Emergency hormonal contraception contains levonorgestrel and is taken as a single pill. It can work in a number of ways:

  • Delaying the release of an egg (ovulation)
  • Preventing fertilisation
  • Stopping a fertilised egg from settling in your womb
